    one word for RNG, "Flawed"

    Same HAMSTER as always. Still no drop and lost one run due a mob being stuck in the ground. Thanks for wasting my time every day.

    These things should always have a way to break the RNG. Seals are used in many games to make this happen. I couldnt believe there was no seal or trade system for the alabaster set. The set is a big gatkeeper for power in this mod and something needs to be done. 5 main hands in my main main and zero of either on my 2 other mains.

    Third Alabaster MH with my Warlock, but i was looking for another OH for that character.
    Ebonized OH with my Fighter.
    Nothing really usefull with my Paladin.

    Anyway, i really hope there'll be at least some changes to this RNG grind festival before they release Undermountain for console, or we might not see any change in that department before they release the next module.

    If they have include alabaster stuff in the undermountain store, many people would already have their alabaster set right now.

    +1 to this idea. Set the price at 2500 coalesced magic each (just like the other artifact gear), and some players would almost certainly buy them from there. I'd suggest that they be BtC on pickup, to avoid people gearing up alts with them.

    2 characters fully alabastered out and my fighter got his shield on his second run after hitting 80 last night!

    Well, another round of crappy rare loot for me from the daily 3 MEs...

    Meh, been doing them since day 2 on MOD 16. 3 a day, every day.
    5 Off-hands, no mains, and none in the last three weeks.
    2 1000 pieces from Nox so far, and one waist and one neck, none in the past three weeks.
    The only cool things I have gotten in past three weeks are a couple of legendary vanity dragons,
    ya know to go with the 4-7 I have of all the ordinary ones that drop daily.
    I use to play this game for hours and hours, now if I make it over an hour and a half on any day
    it is a miracle...
    and it is time to up me some VIP, and not really seeing how even drop a ten spot on this game is worth my time
    currently.

    Nothing will change until Mod 17 at the earliest. As long as the Mountaineer set is in that $200 pack, there is no way they'll provide an easy alternative. They usually replace those packs at the start of each module, so perhaps in 9 or 10 weeks we'll actually be able to get our hands on level-appropriate artifact weapons.

    I am really starting to get highly de-motivated about running MEs.
    My main SW has gotten 6 OH since she started running MEs since the 1st weekend of M16. No MH at all.
    My TR alt, who completed the Undermountain quest line about 2 weeks after my main, and has been running MEs since, has gotten about 4 OHs and 7 ebony MH, but no alabaster MH.

    This is really breaking my spirit.
    I picked up my DC alt, and I was a little motivated to get her to 80 and provide some help to my alliance, but... I don't know now. I'm just loosing all my desire.

    Well, it looks like my Cleric is going through the same crappy loot pattern like my Fighter, a ton of rare HAMSTER with one Ebonized MH from the daily ME runs this far... i gues we've to wait for the console players to suffer through this RNG HAMSTER for a while and start complaining about it as well before we're going to see any changes.

    Just in: On today's stream it was confirmed that alabaster drop rate has been improved. Mountaineer should be coming in a week or so as well. No word on Watcher.
    Hoping for improvements...

    Just a note - they did not say when the Alabaster 'fix' was going to be applied. At least it was discussed.
    I aim to misbehave

    My guess, a month after the Undermountain release on console, to motivate at least some console players to buy the bloody overpriced cursed Delver's Expedition Pack.

    No changes here, 2 rare HAMSTER items and 1 Ebonized Spear in the daily run, and btw. out of combat the spear is placed at the characters side, and not on the characters back as any other spear... it looks like someone just copy & paste the position of weapons from one to the other without checking the results in game.

    Every week the Mountaineer set is coming next week.... And what will it sell for, when it actually does???
  • sparkbibosparkbibo Member Posts: 6 Arc User
    Bump. It has not been fixed. Along with improving the RNG, why not add a counter. Like, after X number of Expeditions, you just get it.

    I would guess that I have had better luck then most. I run a cleric, a fighter and a paladin in MEs. I have gotten 2 OH/2MH for cleric and fighter and 1 MH/1OH for paladins. Now granted I still need 1 more cleric set and 2 more paladin sets for my characters, but all and all not too bad.

    And I will add, I seem to get more alabaster weapons when I am running no-rune/solo runs. If that helps anyone.
